About Lana Chu

My family and I have traveled extensively and love booking private homes to get a taste of the local flavor, in fact, our entire honeymoon was booked in homes and apartments in Italy, Spain and Croatia!

I am a Glass Artist at GinkgoGlass Studio and overall creative person. I have a science background and am a Nutritionist by training, but the creative part always sneaks out of me. My husband is an artist as well working in many mediums.

Traveling was a big part of my childhood with the military life and I was born in Fairbanks, Alaska. I have lived all over the USA and in Italy and The Netherlands. Some of my favorite places in the world are Venice, Italy, Croatia, San Francisco, CA, and Black Rock City, NV.

My obsessions are ethnic food, farm to table, art museums and gardens, Indie Movies, glass blowing and watercolor journaling in my Hobonichi Techo. I like to meet new people but totally understand the need for quiet especially when you are traveling.

My motto is "Don't assume anything and life is better without expectations. Be open to the surprise moments."

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

The house is very stylish, comfy, convenient and in a centralized location, so it's easy to get to wherever you need to go in Memphis. The owner was so easy to work with and super accommodating! Neighborhood was friendly and everything was clean. Highly recommend! We will definitely be back!

Perfect everything

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family when we were visiting other family in Memphis. The size, the layout, the amenities...are perfect! But what put it over the top were the little things Lana did to make it even better.

The remote controls for the lights, including a dimmer so my 10 year old wasn't afraid (I forgot a night light). The soap and lotion in the bathroom. The shampoo and condition in the shower. The creamer in the kitchen. The comfy throws in the den. The beautiful decorations and kitchen full of whatever we needed.

This house was just what we needed when we needed to find a place to sleep in a house full of 20 at my Sister in laws ~ Being able to get away to our own little place was priceless and we'll definitely be staying again!

Cozy house is the perfect name

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for our group of marathon runners for St Jude’s. The house is in a nice safe neighborhood. It is also very clean which is important to us all. I will definitely book this house next year for the race.
